Karnataka's year-old Congress-Janata Dal coalition government is on life support after yet another Independent lawmaker quit and pledged support to the BJP, taking the total number of resignations since last week to 15. Thirteen of them belong to the ruling Congress and the Janata Dal Secular. Earlier today, another Independent, made minister a month ago, resigned and came out in support of the BJP, giving it a narrow edge in the assembly. Congress's Roshan Baig, who was suspended last month for "anti-party activities" too says he will quit the Congress and join the BJP. Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, who cut short a private visit to the US and returned to handle the crisis, said all Congress and JDS minsters have resigned and a cabinet reshuffle will happen soon. The idea is to make room for rebels who might be persuaded to return. The BJP has denied any role in the crisis but sources say it is getting ready to strike.
